Well just look at the picture – vintage Chamonix Chic. Villa Terrier is a grand old luxury Chamonix chalet built in 1910. Over the years we’ve discretely replaced some of the old bits with new bits (for example the entire kitchen this year) and the result is a stunning haven just minutes from the centre of Chamonix, with an incredible Mont Blanc view.
It’s a place that will beguile you with its classic elegance. The venue for sophisticated soirées and society events during the 1924 Winter Olympics, it still exudes an atmosphere of opulence. Combine this with Collineige service and cuisine and you are assured of an exquisite holiday.
For those staying in our catered chalets we will take care of you from the moment that we meet you at the airport until we bid you farewell at the end of your stay. Be it a romantic getaway or a family reunion, a holiday with friends or a work conference, we can tailor the property and the service to suit you. We can arrange an après ski massage in your own chalet, direct you to the right doctor should the need arise or find you the perfect child minder.
Our chefs are ‘borrowed’ from the Michelin starred restaurants of Europe to cook for you in your chalet. They will source the finest local ingredients to prepare mouth watering menus to suit your tastes, taking their inspiration from the specialities of Savoy and further afield.
Our catered chalet prices include homemade cake & tea after skiing and on five evenings each week, a four course dinner with wine. The chefs do not have a fixed menu but enjoy creating menus to suit your preferences. We provide a very good house wine and you may also upgrade this by buying from our carefully chosen wine list.

Villa Terrier is located on a small, residential road, set back in its own grounds. It is a quiet location, but is only 10 minutes walk to a wide range of great bars, restaurants and shops in central Chamonix. It is also only 10 minutes walk to the Brevant ski lift - although all of this is uphill! As the chalet has parking, and is located in Chamonix town itself it is also ideally placed for accessing all the other Chamonix ski areas by car.
Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, or Chamonix as it is more widely known, is a town and commune at the foot of Mont Blanc. It is France's oldest ski resort and really came to prominence when the first Winter Olympics were held there in 1924.
The town is at an altitude of 1035 metres, and the River Arve runs through it as it does through the other hamlets and villages of the commune - Le Tour (1453m), Argentière (1252m), Les Tines and Les Praz (1060m) and Les Bossons (1012m).
Chamonix is well placed for visiting other places of interest and not only in France - it is on the borders of Switzerland and Italy. Courmayeur is only a short drive away through the Mont Blanc tunnel and Geneva is a must for those needing a little retail therapy.
For a day’s pampering there is the Pre Saint Didier spa with thermal baths just past Courmayeur and there are more thermal baths at Leytron, beyond Martigny. Other nearby ski resorts to visit are Megève and St Gervais.
Few places are as beautiful or as inspiring to ski as Chamonix, and it is a wonderful place in which to introduce your family to skiing. In the last few years many more beginner and intermediate ski areas have been opened and in Chamonix itself the nursery slopes at Les Planards and Le Savoy with their attendant ski schools are a great draw for young families.
It is important to choose the right kind of ski instruction for each member of the family and we are happy to advise on this and book the lessons for you.Equally if you need child care whilst you are with us then we can arrange this. We know a number of experienced and qualified carers in the valley and will help you to find the most suitable. We can provide cots, highchairs, car seats and pushchairs on request (in all chalets and apartments).
There is a supply of toys available and in the catered chalets we are happy to provide early children's suppers. With the right chalet, ski instruction and service you are set to enjoy a memorable family holiday.
